Thank you so much for writing a story for me!

Things I enjoy: plot, character interaction, exploring a canon world, interesting use of superpowers (especially the less overtly powerful ones), crossovers, established relationships, teammates to lovers, enemies to lovers.

Do Not Wants: non-con or rape; non-canon permanent character deaths (canon deaths are fine); mentor/student, adult/teen or adult/child sexual interaction; zombies; apocalyptic or post-apocalyptic AUs; mundane AUs; cancer.

I've listed a huge array of characters, so I'm going to be fairly general in this letter. What I'm really looking for in this exchange is women being competent, and women focused on their relationships with women. "Competent" doesn't have to mean victorious or heroic - as you can see from my several villain nominations - but I really like to see characters who have goals, whether it's relationship goals or taking over New York or saving the world or all of the above! In art terms, I like to see characters doing something, whether fighting together or fighting each other or maybe learning/training together, or on a date in the clouds. I like complex heroes with flaws and complex villains who think they're doing the right thing.

I would also like to assure you that although I am a long-time comics fan, I am absolutely not a canon purist in any shape or form. I don't care if Volume 2 Issue #126 of Ladies Comics in 1978 had the same first meeting as you want to write or draw - I want to see your version. You want to only use one particular version of canon, that's great! If you want to bring in movieverse canon to comics or comics backstory to movies, I will enjoy it. About the only part of Marvel that I'm not really into is the cosmic stuff like Guardians of the Galaxy (Asgardians excepted), so I may not be so up on that.

If you have any questions, ask my partner [personal profile] st_aurafina.

Two verified fundraisers that are directly assisting the victims, their families, and their community. There are more details at each of the links. All my love and sympathy to the people of Christchurch, to Muslims in NZ and worldwide, and to everyone else under threat from this white supremacist ideology.


On Launchgood: The New Zealand Islamic Information Centre, focusing on immediate assistance.

On Give A Little: The New Zealand Council of Victim Support Groups, focusing on both immediate and long-term assistance.

ETA (via [personal profile] muccamukk: The New Zealand Council of Victim Support Groups' site is now overloaded with support and is asking that this site be used instead.

Dear Yuletide Writer,

Thank you so much for writing a story for me! I've tried to put plenty of information for each fandom, but if you would like to write something completely different please feel free! I am also happy for you to include as many or as few of the nominated characters as you wish. If you're not sure about anything, or want to do a crossover with another fandom and need to check if I know it, just ask my partner [personal profile] st_aurafina.

Things I enjoy: stories about female characters, plot, character interaction, gen fic, slash, femslash, female-centric het, exploring a canon world. I also like OCs as a way to expand the canon universe, so if that's a direction you want to go, that would be great. AUs are awesome – both in the sense of a deviation from canon and a completely different world – as long as they're not mundane AUs. Coffee shop no, superpowered coffee shop yes.

Do Not Wants: non-con or rape; non-canon character deaths (canon deaths are fine); mentor/student, adult/teen or adult/child sexual interaction; zombies; apocalyptic or post-apocalyptic AUs; mundane AUs; cancer.

What a fine 12-year-old kitty who still gets the zooms at least twice a day!

For his birthday I got him a glitter ball from under the couch where he had put it, and he greatly enjoyed the rediscovery.

Last year, [personal profile] st_aurafina gave me a desk calendar by Gingiber featuring 12 different cats. Well, it's the last day of 2017, and the calendar is postcard sized, so I would love to send them out into the world as postcards. If you want to see the illustrations, they're the same as her 2018 wall calendar and the same cat for each month.

I'll post anywhere in the world, so if you would like one please leave your address, comments are screened. Tell me if there's a particular month you would/wouldn't like and I'll do my best!

I received an absolutely amazing fic for Yuletide! It's a Wonder Woman fic, about Doctor Maru hunting down Diana in the aftermath of WWI. Doctor Maru was a character who really fascinated me in the movie, but I thought I was setting a massive challenge to anyone who matched with me on that prompt, as I didn't want her cruelty or violence to be downplayed or erased. My mystery author has come through with flying colours by setting this over a long, long period of time, giving Maru opportunity and need to change and adapt - and be changed by what she experiences, too. A wonderful, wonderful fic, rich with detail and with compassion worthy of Diana herself. It's formatted as a five things, but it's a series of scenes in the one story, rather than five AUs.

Five Times Dr. Maru Faced Wonder Woman (And One Time She Didn't) (6152 words) by Anonymous
Chapters: 1/1
Fandom: Wonder Woman (2017)
Rating: Teen And Up Audiences
Warnings: No Archive Warnings Apply
Relationships: Diana (Wonder Woman)/Isabel Maru
Characters: Etta Candy, Hippolyta (Wonder Woman)
Additional Tags: Ambiguous/Open Ending, Supervillainry, 5 Things
Summary:

The first time Dr. Maru sees the god-woman, she doesn't expect to survive.



(Aaaand I've just realised that the title is also literal - one time she doesn't face up to Diana at all! Great titling, mystery author!)

It's the time of year for [community profile] femslashex! I've asked for either fic or art on all of my prompts and would be thrilled with either. All but one of my requests are canons with a visual component, but (as a long-time comics fan!) I'm very happy with different interpretations of the characters so don't feel tied down to their literal canon appearances if there's something different you want to do. The same goes for fic - while obviously I enjoy the tone of each canon, if you want to write something at odds with it, or from a different POV or using original characters to explore the canon pairings, that's all good too.

General likes: plot, women working together against common enemies, non-mundane AUs (coffee shop in space yes, coffee shop in modern day Earth no)

General dislikes: rape/non-con, non-canon character deaths, adult/teen or adult/child sexual interaction, mindless zombies, apocalyptic or post-apocalyptic AUs, character or pairing bashing

I've tried to put several prompts for each of the fandoms and a general idea of what I like about them, but if you want to do something else completely, please do! These are just suggestions.
